Am I the only one who could care less? First, my gun is concealed. No one should know I have it unless I'm already aware of a threat and had to draw. Secondly, if the guy knew I had a weapon and also had the jump on me as completely unprepared like with the guy in the video, he could also just stab, choke, knock out, shoot me first, whatever. A different holster wouldn't matter, you're already at an almost impossible disadvantage. Third, even if I had a better holster, if I can remove the gun, so can he. If he has you so completely unaware like in that video, he might as well unstrap your gun too. Or get a guy strong enough or determined enough, and he'll rip your $400 holster away from you, taking your pants and belt with it too if need be.

Well said. I've attended and taught at numerous seminars where handgun retention was worked on, and I think over the years I have seen virtually every brand of holster made fail at one time or another. FWIW, I've got lots of holsters including Safariland, Kramer, Bianchi, and have used lots more over the years, but the one I find myself using the most for waistband carry these days is the Fobus. It works well, it does the job it is designed for, and is comfortable for me. And it has made it through a couple of handgun retention classes without falling apart.

Anything can be proved wrong if one tries hard enough. I'll keep my Fobus .
Sure. You sell them, don't you?
